Launch and Panel Discussion
‘Let the mob do the job’ – a discussion on freedom of expression and religion online in Asia

Date: 19 November 2017 (Sunday)
Time: 2.30-5.30pm
Venue: Room KL11, KLTC, Level 2 Chulan Tower, Jalan Conlay.

Research in several Asian countries reveals worrying trends of well-organised and targeted attacks committed in the name of defending religion or beliefs against individuals and groups of people who exercise their freedom of expression. The internet, while creating spaces for discussion and participation, has also been used by certain actors to manipulate online images and messages to mobilise or provoke responses and actions that could be harmful. This session will discuss the findings in the report that covered Bangladesh, India, Malaysia and Pakistan and hear from experts on the context, challenges and opportunities in Malaysia for the practice of freedom of expression and religion online.

Report presentation by: Gayathry Venkiteswaran

Panelists:

  • Sevan Doraisamy (SUARAM executive director)
  • Fadiah Nadwa Fikri (human rights lawyer)
  • Mujahid Yusof Rawa (Member of Parliament for Parit Buntar)

Participation is open to all and there is no entrance fee. Refreshments will be served.

This event is co-organised by the School of Media, Languages and Cultures at the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) and the Association for Progressive Communications.

For inquiries, please contact Gayathry (019-7257970).
